SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Police responded to a Scranton neighborhood where a 2-year-old boy was seriously injured after being hit by a car Thursday. The Lackawanna County Coroner has informed Eyewitness News that the boy has died from his injuries.

Scranton police cordoned off the 21-hundred block of Dorothy Street. They were called to the scene near the entrance to Issac Tripp Elementary School for a two-year-old boy struck by a vehicle around 11:00 a.m.

“I looked at my bedroom window first, and all I saw were cars and the neighbor was sitting on the ground. The ambulance was right in front of the house. Which I am guessing where the kid was,” stated Justin Peters, a neighbor.

The toddler was rushed to Geisinger CMC with life-threatening injuries. Scranton police escorted the ambulance to the hospital in east Scranton.

“I saw cameras around, I saw an investigator over here and then I saw cops walking around as well,” said Peters.

Police say there are two vehicles in question. At this time they are unsure which vehicle was involved. Eyewitness News saw no driver on the scene but officers tell us everyone is cooperating with authorities.

“Honestly, it seems like whenever something happens it’s on this street. It’s crazy,” explained Peters.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene for police evidence.

People from the Lackawanna County District Attorney’s Office were on the scene for a period of time. The Lackawanna County Coroner confirmed the two-year-old boy has since died from injuries sustained by the impact. We will update you with the latest information as it is released.
